As Flipboard Turns 2, China and Japan are Among Top Countries for Users


Everyone’s favorite newsreader Flipboard celebrates its second birthday this summer, and to mark the occasion the company has released a fun infographic highlighting many of its important milestones. Most notable among them is the fact that the service now has over 20 million users in total, and is adding a new user every second.

The graphic also notes that Japan and China are among the its top countries. While Flipboard got off to a somewhat rocky start in China (being blocked in May of last year), it then proceeded to mosey on in to the Chinese market like a boss with partnerships with Sina and Renren late in 2011. That was the first international edition of Flipboard.

This past May, Japan became the third country (after China and France) to get a localized edition of Flipboard. And according to the company’s infographic, Japanese are the most social users of the service.
